Registration is now open for the ArchivesSpace Virtual Member Forum!
Taking place April 4-5, 2023, our Virtual Member Forum will be a two-day event spanning a variety of time zones and ArchivesSpace experience levels. Anyone from an ArchivesSpace member organization is welcome to attend.
As in years past, this free event will include a mix of opportunities to share and learn from each other about many different aspects of ArchivesSpace. We plan to hold the meeting in some form no matter what but the success of our forums is dependent on the participation of members and their willingness to share their knowledge and experience with others in the community.
To that end, everyone attending the forum is strongly encouraged to consider submitting a proposal. Brief 15-20 minute sessions showing off your organization’s implementation of ArchivesSpace, a tool or plug-in you’ve developed, a project your organization has undertaken or a new workflow you’ve developed are highly encouraged.
We are accepting proposals via our online form at https://forms.gle/jpSyx7VWZQ91HfTP8. We will be reviewing proposals on a rolling basis, so we encourage you to get your proposals in early. Submissions will be closed on March 24, 2023, with final notification by March 27, 2023.
Information about the Virtual Member Forum is as follows:
April 4, 2023, 1pm-3pm UTC (find your local time)
April 4, 2023, 5pm-7pm UTC (find your local time)
April 5, 2023, 3pm-6pm UTC (find your local time)
All online via Zoom, with opportunities to join via computer or phone
Who Can Attend:
Anyone from an ArchivesSpace member organization is welcome to attend. This is a free event but registration is required.
Registration is available to individuals from ArchivesSpace member institutions only. Registration is required for each session and registration for each session can be found at the beginning of that session’s agenda. If you register for any event during the forum, you will receive connection information via Zoom. If you register for one session, you are guaranteed a spot in that session only. You must register for all activities you plan to attend.
This year’s Virtual Member Forum is the successor to the Online Forums we held in previous years. To better support our member community and recognize their direct contributions to the development and sustainability of the ArchivesSpace application, registration for this year’s event is open to users from ArchivesSpace member organizations only.
We anticipate recording many parts of the forum, but for it to be a success we will also need as many live participants as possible. We encourage you to dip in and out of the live program as much as you can. You will no doubt “meet” a different set of colleagues each time.
Please feel free to contact ArchivesSpace Community Engagement Coordinator Jessica Crouch at ArchivesSpaceHome@lyrasis.org with questions. We look forward to seeing many of you there!
